The Daughter

"Powerful, low-key yet achingly intense… Deeply involving and emotionally searing, “The Daughter” reps a confident and profoundly moving big screen debut for established theater director Simon Stone."
-Eddie Cockrell, Variety
Produced by Jan Chapman & Nicole O'Donohue

Synopsis

In the last days of a dying logging town Christian (Paul Schneider) returns to his family home for his father Henry’s (Geoffrey Rush) wedding to the much younger Anna (Anna Torv). While home, Christian reconnects with his childhood friend Oliver (Ewen Leslie), who has stayed in town working at Henry’s timber mill and is now out of a job. As Christian gets to know Oliver’s wife Charlotte (Miranda Otto), daughter Hedvig (Odessa Young) and father Walter (Sam Neill), he discovers a secret that could tear Oliver’s family apart. As he tries to right the wrongs of the past, his actions threaten to shatter the lives of those he left behind years before.
